I know a guy who got wynn to shape him a Rocket cause he was in a money bind and couldnt afford to have lost shape him one. He talked to Wynn and a month later his board was ready . I asked him can you tell a difference?? He said other than the lable no he couldnt.
You could also get Legend to shape you a board i dont know his schedual but he make the best Epoxy boards in NJ. Also you could get Heritage to shape u a board too
I appreciate the info, Brian Heritage not option for me, gonna talk to Wynn
I have a wynn rocket very similar to the one posted. I like it. its a good go to board for nj. I have a tri quad converter. I like it. Waves generally need to have either curve or a little push i.e. not a groveler type board. I ride in in waist to head high. I have been experimenting with it as a quad and it holds rail a little better as a quad cause the tail is so wide, i suppose. Once you get the board going its fast and connects sections well. Skates over flat sections sooo easy. It has a nice tight turning radius and enough tail rocker to release the tail.
If you are looking to replace an everyday shortboard with something more fun and shorter. Replacing something like a flyer I think the rocket is a good choice. If you are looking to replace like a groveler its not a groveler. If you are looking to replace a hpsb its not that either. Hope that helps.
Hey man, I have a 5 10 lost motivator, which is the same as a rocket but a tad more beefy. I am 6'3 and 210 lb and the 5'10 seems perfect. I can get up in waist high, yet it has performed awesome in shoulder to about head high. I use it with thruster set up. At your size you could prob get away with a smaller rocket, like a 58, 59, 510, etc. Good luck!
I am 6'2 about 175 and i ride a 6'0, 20, 2.5 rocket. +1 on riding it in anything over head. slid out in a tube and my fin got ripped out. thank god it didnt break the plug. i think i could have went shorter, thinner, and less wide but it still works great in anything with push just like everyone has said. it's a good board for a decent day on the EC.
Rockets are great but make sure to get the right size. If you get it too big it defeats the purpose.
This is true. I usually ride 5'10 to 6'0 and I have the lost fish in a 5'8 and its my new fav board for sure but ive been learning that it does not work when its OH, especially here on the north shore lol
